Effectively creating multiple elevations for one plan can be challenging. There are many variables to consider, including architectural styling, color, cost, massing, and fenestration. This home was designed for a lakefront community within which the builder wanted to create a micro-community of six homes side by side, establishing a unique identity for his brand. There were several challenges to overcome, not least of which is the fact that the homes are just 25 feet wide and have front-facing garages. The solution was to create an open plan with plenty of glass on the lakefront, while also achieving distinct character on the street side.
